Snyder had mixed results with last State of State

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, MI (AP) -

Gov. Rick Snyder heads into next week's State of the State address with some unfinished business.

Some of the big proposals he gave in last year's speech stalled in the Republican-led Legislature.

His new address could be less of a long list of new policy proposals and more of a call to revisit items like raising $1.4 billion more for road maintenance.

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are reluctant to raise the state gas tax or vehicle registration fees.

A look back at what the governor proposed a year ago shows he had successes like requiring insurers to cover autism treatments and phasing out a tax on business equipment.

Failures included a rejection of his call for a state-run online marketplace where people can shop for health insurance.
